Communal Riots, 2004
Preview not available

Abstract

In the last few years, it is the western zone of the country, i e, Gujarat and Maharashtra that have mostly witnessed communal violence. In 2004, like 2003, the riots that took place started with small incidents, but they did not assume serious proportions as no political party tried to exploit them to engineer communal violence on a larger scale. In all the instances, the police could effectively control the violence as they could act independently and without political pressure.
